The glossy red berries of this blue Holly are a sure sign that Christmas is approaching! This eye catching evergreen is supplied as a standard tree, making the perfect container plant for framing your front door.
As the name suggests, Ilex x meserveae ‘Blue Maid’ is a female variety. It produces tiny white flowers in spring which, if pollinated by a male variety, are followed by a profusion of holly berries in future years. Once established, the scarlet berries contrast beautifully with its glossy, purple-green foliage. Unlike many Hollies, the leaves are not especially spiky - so there’s no chance of your visitors being prickled as they pass.
This low maintenance evergreen is ideal for patio containers or planting directly into borders, providing year round structure and colour in the garden. Supplied as a 2-year-old plant in a 3 litre pot with an average height of 75cm (30"), and a 30cm (12") wide head of foliage. Ultimate height: 1.5m (5’). Ultimate spread: 60cm (24").
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
